Flex Class: Moving Beyond Gender Stereotypes: A Cross-Cultural Exploration 9-13

This class will introduce gender stereotypes in Western culture and teach students to look beyond those assumptions by drawing on different gender norms in non-Western cultures that go beyond the binary Western structure.

Class Experience

I am an experienced Educator, Coordinator, and Supervisor with 7+ years of administration, management and customer service experience, 5+ years of teaching, student advisement and project development, and 2+ years working with international students, qualitative research, and course development. I hold a Master of Arts (M.A.) in Anthropology from Binghamton University, and a Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) in Sociology/Anthropology and Music from Mansfield University, in addition to a TEFL certification. I am also a course complete PhD student in Anthropology, studying the intersection of politics and religion. I also hold a General Class Amateur Radio License with 13wpm Morse Code. I am also a certified social studies teacher with NY certification for grades 5-12.

My anthropological training in academia includes learning about human evolution, race and racism, colonialism, cultural diversity, cultural awareness and education, bias, reflexivity, impacts of academic research on minority groups, and research ethics. I am also the Educational Coordinator and Lead Teacher of a Sunday school and a substitute teacher in 5 local school districts. I give talks on issues of religion, politics, and race issues, and have taught classes related to this topic previously. I conducted a thesis paper for my undergraduate on conflicts international students faced, which discussed issues of race, religion, language, cultural misunderstandings, and xenophobia. My Master's research focused on immigration issues, racism towards immigrants from Ethiopia in Israel, and conflict between religious sects. I also run a group that addresses issues of race, religion, politics, and teaches cultural awareness and diversity through education of traditions, history, and music from around the world.
This class will use Nearpod for students to respond to quizzes, polls, and open-ended questions and student video responses for each week.
The students need access to regular Youtube. Some of the videos may not play in the kid's version of Youtube.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
No live meetings, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
This class will cover issues of gender, sexuality, LGBTQ, stereotypes, transphobia, homophobia, and bullying. I will approach each topic through the lens of the class being a safe space. No hateful words or actions that put others down will be tolerated. My classroom space is a safe space for students to learn and explore these topics. This class uses Nearpod as an approved 3rd party tool.
